Flushing, MI - Ralph O. Helgeby Chapter

About Us


Welcome to our website

Welcome to the website for EAA Chapter 77, with information about our chapter, the Father John Flying Club and the Ultralight Flying Club, all co-located at Dalton Airport (3DA) located in Flushing, Michigan.  Visit each page of our site to get a comprehensive summary of the people, aircraft and activities associated with our chapter and our community.

We are the Ralph O. Helgeby Chapter 77 of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). Chapter 77 is all about people and families passionate about flying. Our desire is to bring together individuals interested in all aspects of flight and learning more about aviation, as well as sharing our own knowledge. Our chapter members are involved in a variety of educational and social activities, including Young Eagles rallies, fly-ins, social outings, community projects, building and restoring aircraft and more, to build awareness in the community.As a non-profit, volunteer organization we are dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of general aviation. 

Our monthly general membership meetings are held  in our chapter room on the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM. At 6:00 PM, preceding the meeting we have a social hour with light food and refreshments. 

Meetings contain a variety of programs that focus on sharing ideas to make aviation safer and more fun. They also feature presentations on many aspects of general aviation and resource sharing by pilots and builders. Mostly they are a friendly get-together for members and visitors. The chapter also sponsors activities for flying enthusiasts of all kinds. We present many educational programs and we participate in programs designed to introduce the non-flying community to the value and joy of flight.

Chapter board meetings are held usually monthly 7 days prior to the membership meeting (Thursdays) at 7:00 PM. All members are welcome.

Our annual dues are $30 per family.  For more information, contact us at eaa77president.org or EAA Chapter 77, PO Box 265, Flushing, MI 48433-0265. 

Visitors are welcome to all EAA77 events.  If you're a pilot, airplane builder or just love aviation then accept our invitation to attend the next monthly meeting.  If you have children who are interested in flying we would love to have the opportunity to introduce them to aviation through our Young Eagles program. Similarly, adults can get an introduction to aviation through an Eagles Flight. 

We look forward to meeting you soon.
